Kitchen Envy: Mosaically yours..

Mosaic backsplash

Another great one from Marie Claire Maison this week. I was highly impressed by the mosaic backsplash in this kitchen, without it this space would be average at best. Even more impressive is that this mosaic is vintage, from the forties. The mosaic is allowed to be the star of this space, with understated cabinetry and stainless steel appliances merely quietly accenting the room.

Do not be fooled however, as the appliances are from the likes of Smeg and Liebherr – like my mum always said, whatever you are buying make sure it is of good quality. And rightly so. The lady has Jaegar suits older than I am that look as good as new.

If I were to change one thing about this space, it would be the glass shelf that runs through the beautiful mosaic. I think the addition of plates and ceramics on the shelf are very distracting and create too much ‘noise’ to an otherwise statement piece. Aside from that I find it all rather lovely.
